it take it yours has the adjuster system on cable and not automatic adjustment then?? seing you have fitted new pads discs you have to bed them in abit.

Mine was poor after changing pads and disks but they have come back after a cple hundred miles and is spot on now..You need to look under your car get sum1 to pull up hand brake (obv chock wheels ) to see how much slacks in cable.


Also yes as soon as the lever is turned it pushes the piston out  i hope this is some help to you

Hi yes no need for washer as hose is tappered inside so it seals itself.. Yes ball joint splitter is handy tool to have a assume ur talking about front lower arm bushes here aswell???But also sumtimes the hub s tight in joint so you need sumthing to gentle open up hub to help joint out.The upright bolt also gose through subframe so just do a side at a time.

The slider pins come out when the piston is pushed out but if they was bent could snag causing drag..As urs arnt then i say piston .you can get repair kits and pistons but they are almost as expensive as calipers themselves. My opinion would be to either buy new but not remanufactored as you dont know how bad they where b4 they processed them,ford are expensive.However theres a guy on ebay that dose good new sets at £40 each side from uk with warranty... http://www.ebay.co.u...II-SALOON-HATCH


I got mine here..my last mondeo i fitted 2nd hand i made sure they worked well and in good condition not hanging with rust cleaned them up esp around handbrake pivit /adjuster as for labour i done them in about hr n half both rears
